The Passengers from Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Goa will have to carry RT-PCR negative test results with them from November 25
Maharashtra government on Monday announced new rules for people entering the state by air, rail, and road. The Passengers from Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Goa will have to carry RT-PCR negative test results with them from November 25. The rules were issued soon after Cheif Minister Udhhav Thakeray hinted at the “second wave” of Coronavirus in the state.
Here’s all you need to know about the new rules if you are coming to Maharashtra by air, rail, and road!
Travelling by air
Passengers will have to show the test report before boarding the flight and again on arrival to the teams at the airport. The test should have been taken maximum before 72 hours of landing in the state of Maharashtra.
Travelling by train
For those travelling through trains, that start from Delhi-NCR, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Goa or halt at these places will have to carry the RT-PCR negative report. The sample for the test must be collected within 96 hours before they arrive in Maharashtra.
Travelling by road
Land border district collectors have been given the responsibility to make sure that people travelling by road do not have symptoms of the virus. People with symptoms will have the option of going back to their homes.
However, passengers travelling by air will have to undergo the RT-PCR test at the airports at their own cost if they fail to carry the negative report with them. The passengers will be contacted by the airport authorities, in case, the report comes positive. Unlike this, the state government will bear the cost of the Antigen test of the passengers coming by rail and road without RT-PCR negative report.
